Faulty engine mounts are a safety hazard, hence taking a toll on driving comfort. These parts are predisposed to fail prematurely caused, for instance, by frequent temperature changes from ambient air to operating temperatures, high engine loads and excessive vibration. The results range from unpleasant noise and unresponsive steering to—sometimes radically—reduced driving comfort.
Ways to diagnose faulty engine mounts and the resulting consequences are the topics in the newest “MEYLE Mechanics” video on the “MEYLE TV” YouTube channel. It details the system intricacies and showcases potential consequential damages of a defective engine mount. The video shows that a defective engine mount will put the remaining support points under additional stress as vibration increases and cause the engine to tilt to a degree where it may contact the body or any peripheral components, which include the hoes, drive train, and cables. Replacement of the worn engine mounts can effectively avert this scenario and provide customers with the immediate and clear benefit of significantly enhanced driving comfort.
Under its MEYLE and MEYLE-HD brands, Wulf Gaertner Autoparts provides three generations of MEYLE engine mounts: hydraulic engine mounts, full-rubber mounts, and electrically or pneumatically switchable engine mounts.
